Pioneer RV park just north of Phoenix.  Most of the parks here in Phoenix do the same as I say we passed at 13 yo. But had never asked before.

That's news to me as I have never had that asked of me before!  All I get is "What kind, length, how many slides, toad and pet/pets"? That's it.  $25 to $125 a day, anywhere in the USA!  I have heard of it happening, but that was 10-15 years ago and mainly in California and Florida!

In my experience they have the rule so they have the ability to refuse you. I have on several occasions stayed at places with a 10yr rule, I email them a photo while booking the reservation, usually get put on hold and have never been turned away and our coach is a 2002. I will say all of the times we have stayed at these places it was a great experience and relaxing. A few have explained why they have the rule and after you hear the stories you will understand. As with everything now a days it only takes one or two to spoil it for the rest of us.

Manholt is right, usually in FL or CA is where you will find these.

We have come across some parks that ask the age etc. Frankly, after stopping in some RV parks on our travels, we are all for it.

Sadly we have noticed that the number of “full time residents” in Rv parks has been increasing and by this I mean RVs that looked like they haven’t been moved in a long time nor could they be moved. This seems more prevalent in the “oil” or pipeline States but is spreading. We have stopped at a couple of parks where there were only a couple of sites available for travelers, and these were fairly well rated campgrounds in GS, but that’s another story.

When we had an older RV, it was perpetually 9 years old.  No one every challenged this as it always looked good.  Later we restored a couple of older vintage silver trailers and we told them the year and it was a restored vintage RV.  A few would ask for a picture which we proudly sent them.

There was one RV Resort north of Houston that would let our 1979 Silver Streak in with our RV club rally, but would not let us in as a single unit.  Yet, they had fairly new rigs that looked much worse than our restored RV.

Most places are reasonable and just want the rigs to look decent.

I have only come across a couple parks that either have that 10 year rule, and/or bring it up.  Like someone already said, some parks may have it in place so they can refuse service to some folks.

We like to utilize a public park back in the general area where most of our family is located.  It is a small park on a river owned by a park district.  They don't have the 10 year old rule but they certainly should have.  Over the years they began to get full of full timers in old TT's, fivers, and coaches.  They are one of the few RV facilities in Illinois that have sites open in the winter months.  At $330 a month (including electric) it was a cheap place to live and the park eventually turned into just a run down trailer park.  

They have started to turn that around by closing the park from December 1st to April 1st.  This forced all the "trailer park non-RV" residents to leave.  Many of them had to hire someone to move their units and some even abandoned them.  If the park district would have had the 10 year old rule and enforced it they would have never gotten into that situation in the first place.

Hi. Ive had some friends who were bothered by something like this, and I understand that some facilities do have this rules. It is always good to go to there website and read the policies before booking.
